I stayed at this hotel a few nights for a business meeting, and it's difficult to find a better location for that price. The hotel is somewhat worn and my room - can't speak for others - was small, but clean. Staff was nice and friendly. Overall good value for money given San Francisci hotel pricing.

We were travelling on a multicentre holiday around California and Nevada. I booked the Handlery as it was reasonably priced and I figured we didn't need luxury as we would be out exploring the city most of the time we were there. It was basic but the bathroom was clean (room itself was a little dusty but overall acceptable) and... More

We stayed here for a few nights. The room was petite but comfortable. Requested for a quite room and enjoyed the rest. The staff were friendly and room was cleaned daily. The hotel was close to the CBD and shops galore. Chinatown was a walking distance. We walked daily from the hotel to Fisherman's Wharf. Plenty of brekkie outlets. Prescott... More

Stayed at the Handlery Union Square for 10 nights October 2014. We stayed in the premium section so the rooms were very spacious and comfortable. There was 4 of us, 2 ad and 2 ch. The location was great for shopping and the cable cars!!! Really enjoyed SanFrancisco!!! The Irish pub Foleys is directly across the street and well worth... More

For the price I paid, I can't complain about the view over some roof tops. However, in nealy every other respect, this hotel met or exceeded my expectations. Staff were friendly, housekeeping was faultless and breakfast was good. However, the main thing in this hotel's favour is its location. A genuine "few steps" from Union Square, and within easy reach... More

An amazing stay! We had about seven rooms for our college organization. Beautiful rooms, friendly and attentive staff members, excellent amenities and a short walk from Union Square. Jon Handlery, general manager, even welcomed us upon our arrival. Hospitality doesn't get any finer than that.

We stayed here for two nights in a Premier Room. This was very clean and comfortable, if a tiny bit dated. We arrived very early in the morning off a long-haul flight and the staff were incredibly helpful; offering us a room immediately instead of having to wait until normal check-in time. They were worried about it being a street-facing,... More

A well located older style heritage hotel with loads of history and character. We stayed in a heritage room in the historic section of the hotel. The rooms were older but fresh, clean, reasonably large with a larger ensuite and higher than average ceilings. The Daily Grill restaurant and bar is fabulous. The food is good with a good variety...

A lovely atmosphere and location. The Management and Concierge were great and provide that welcoming feeling, which is so nice when you're a long way from home. There was an exceptional 'American' style breakfast provided, so needless to say, one is full until tea time :) If you are heading to SF, then book a room here, it will value... More

I was here for five nights. Location unbeatable - next to union square itself, short walk to Powell cable car station, lots of food and shopping in vicinity. I observed that the signboards within the hotel are inadequate. Service from staff was friendly and satisfactory; the person in the lobby with the most initiative is the Asian concierge guy.
